AECOM joint venture (JV) has secured a design contract for the new Terminal 4 at Bao’an International Airport (SZX) in Shenzhen, China.

The company won the contract after securing the first position in the design competition along with its partners, including China Northeast Architectural Design and Research Institute, Shenzhen (CNADRI), Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSH-P) and China Railway No.2 Group.

In the design competition, Aecom worked on aircraft apron planning and the passenger terminal.

Aecom Asia regional CEO Ian Chung said: “We are proud to continue supporting the development of Shenzhen Airport whilst also providing consultancy services for its landscape upgrade.

“Throughout the Greater Bay Area, Aecom has brought together technical leaders from across our business to provide unparalleled expertise with a strong track record of technical excellence demonstrated in multiple projects, including a number of significant projects at Hong Kong International Airport.”

The new 400,000m² Terminal 4 building will be situated towards the north side of the current Terminal 3 area.

With a land area of 365ha, the new terminal is anticipated to manage around 31 million passengers annually.

Terminal 4 will be constructed on a constrained site, under which a rail interchange station is located.

Major work on this station has been completed and it is partially in operation. Initially, the station was not designed to handle any added structural loading.

The new terminal building was planned after considering the complex construction interface while deploying integration solutions for reducing operational disruption.
